Can cartoons be educational to children?

Well... Before any other function that can be attributed to cartoons, the mere fact of entertaining children already makes them relevant to many people around the world. But what about the educational issue... Can you see the cartoons doing this for the kids?

I believe so. From what I know there are educational cartoons out there for children that makes watching time for kids worth while. These educational cartoons promotes learning. Parents just have to find which cartoons are best and enriching for their children; something where children will both learn and enjoy.

Some cartoons really spoil kids, but we can't keep all in Same category.

PBS Kids has some great cartoons that are educational like "Wild Kratts" and some markets "Wordgirl" which is a parody of Superman but with some great humor.

Dora is OK. But many are pretty lame.

Depends on the show and what it is actually teaching them.
